Rock climbing, surfing, fencing, aerial arts, trampolining…

Sometimes soccer and dance aren’t enough to keep children entertained. We all know that little ones are desperate to keep up with the latest trend, so here are five out-of-the-ordinary sports classes for the kids to try in Hong Kong. From surfing to aerial arts, there’s sure to be something that spikes your tiny tyke’s interest! After all, every parent knows it’s never too early to learn a new hobby…

rock climbing

Rock Climbing

Climbing is a fantastic sport to develop confidence and partner trust and supports children to develop problem solving techniques as they navigate the best way up a wall. Roped climbing requires participants to work together and rely on one another as one person belays the other and literally holds their life in their hands. It also requires strength and dexterity and is a great way for children to get active. Set to become one of the newest Olympic Sports at 2020 in Tokyo, interest in the sport is sure to rise. Hong Kong is a great place to get hooked on it with plenty of adrenalin pumping routes throughout the Island and the New Territories. To get started classes are offered at the following venues…

Surfing is also set to become an Olympic sport in 2020 and Hong Kong is the best place for your child to try this daredevil action sport in a safer environment.

We've been looking for clever ways for the whole family to eat more veggies.... purple pasta might do the trick! ⠀
Insta-Worthy Sweet Potato Pasta 💜
1 cup of purple sweet potato, or orange (which is easier to work with texture wise i find) steamed or roasted ⠀⠀
1-1 1/2 cup of unsweetened plant milk (but we'll use regular)⠀⠀
1 clove of roasted garlic ⠀⠀
1-2 tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes ⠀
1 tablespoon of olive oil or vegan butter ⠀
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice ⠀⠀
1 teaspoon smoked paprika ⠀⠀
pinch of sea salt (to taste) ⠀⠀
pinch of black pepper (to taste) ⠀⠀
Blend all your ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth, adjusting the thickness to your liking by adding less or more (plant) milk. Adjust seasonings to your preference also, and serve over freshly cooked pasta. This sauce is best enjoyed right away, as it can clump and change in texture after being refrigerated.⠀⠀
